I was going to post this in “supplements and nutrition”, but I dont think the hard core bodybuilders would of appreciated it, and my question is related to more of a conditioning side of things. So here goes…
Ive recently commenced my skill training for my football comeback, and I have been drinking lots of Gatorade in my session(its summer here in Australia).
I make it at half strength and drink about 2-2.5 litres over a 90 minute skill session. I was wondering if there was a better drink I could be drinking that would have all the electrolytes and maybe less sugar? Im not keen on drinking any artificial sweetners during my skill sessions. tweet tweet
The best electrolyte drink would be natural coconut water, try about 12-16 oz. There’s a brand called Zico and the bottle claims 580 mg potassium. It has 12g sugar per bottle.
Whenever my friends ask about Surge Workout Fuel, I explain that it’s a basically a drastically improved Gatorade with superior ingredients. Don’t get too worried about the carbs if you are doing relatively high intensity activity when you drink it.
